    Default PS3 has hidden self-cleaning option.

    This is pretty nice actually, you know you get that build up of dust inside your console over time, well it appears some owners of the 40Gb model have discovered a secret self cleaning option where the PS3 makes a sound befitting of the 360 more than the PS3 and cleans out the dust and also can improve the sound or lack of sound from your fans.

    Thats strange, i thought they would make that a selling point over the 360.

    If your console is fairly new or it is not a 40Gb model don't do it. Only do it like you format your computer, maybe every 6months or something. It is not a regular thing to do. Currently there is no word from Sony regarding this.

    This method works only for the 40Gb, there is an idiotic way to get the others to do it but honestly it's so stupid as it will essentially after a short period kill your PS3.

    I found this on another forum I visit but they were not sure if it was good for the console or not, but as you's say its fine on the 40gb but on others it makes it over heat apparently

    Surely if Sony allow user changeable Hdd's then there are safer ways to clean the things.
